Create an itinerary including Crater Lake National Park
Known for its deep blue color and clear waters, Crater Lake National Park formed in a collapsed volcano. The lake is more than a protected ecosystem, it is also a sacred place to the Klamath tribe, who researchers think may have witnessed the collapse of the volcano. You'll be able to see another legendary aspect of the lake as well. "Old Man of the Lake," once a tree, now a stump, has bobbed in the lake for centuries. Crater Lake National Park boasts hiking trails and lookout points all around its rim.

  • Absolutely breathtaking! Completely worth the drive! My family and I almost didn't make the drive here and we are SO glad that we did. The water is so blue and calm. We made the drive around the entire lake and there were so many spots to pull off and enjoy the view.
  • a magnificent place, everything that I saw here is difficult to describe, you just have to see it for yourself. purpose of the day can be spent here. You can also go by bike or on foot. such beauty is very rare on earth and must be seen. every year I come to court for one day, I don’t get tired and I’m very pleased, despite the fact that I drive 450 mil per day. Be sure to go, you will be very pleased. only choose good weather,clear not overcast without fog.
